Suspect in custody for explosive mail


NAfter the three attacks with explosive mail on food companies in Baden-Württemberg and Bavaria, a 66-year-old suspect is in custody.  The  Heidelberg public prosecutor and the Baden-Württemberg State Criminal Police Office announced this on Saturday.

© The  arrest of the man had already been ordered on Friday evening. Special police forces arrested the pensioner at his home. © The  man from the Ulm area, who was previously unknown to the police, did not offer any resistance, it said.

Initially, the suspect did not provide any information about the allegations made against him. In particular, the investigations into the shipping route and the type of explosives packages had brought the special commission on Friday on the track of the man, it said in the message.

In the past few days, mail had exploded in the Wild factories in Eppelheim (Rhein-Neckar district) and at the headquarters of the Lidl supermarket chain in Neckarsulm (Heilbronn district). While one employee in Eppelheim suffered a bang, three employees in Neckarsulm were injured. In Bavaria, the police last intercepted an explosive piece of mail addressed to the baby food manufacturer Hipp.
